Qualified for state in wrestling my sophomore year. It was the 2nd place wrestleback. Opponent had beat me 7-2 just 5 days before that district tournament. The referee called a very questionable stall call (2nd stall) on me with literally 2 secs left to tie the match at 7. Beat the kid in sudden victory.
About the best I can claim is academic all conference for my actual competative career. However, I was on back to back undefeated champion intramural basketball teams in HS. I also made one behind the back blind put back (why I thought this was a viable option I don't know) that caught the attention of the disbelieving on lookers :)
Bunch of athletes here! Reading this thread is like being back in HS again as the guy who was too small and skinny to be good at team sports. My claim to fame in organized team sport is getting hit in face in Little League baseball and covering home place with blood. It was an impressive bleed as folks at my 40-year class reunion still remembered it.
I did run some road races in my late 30’s and early 40’s and did okay for a non-athletic guy. The medal for placing in my age group in a 5K race here in the Twin Cities is my sole sports “trophy”. Even though it was not a super fast run, it was the fastest I ever ran.
